A Super New Face
This R/C model assembly kit creates the Super Avante, a 4WD off-road buggy that is bestowed with Tamiya’s legendary Avante name. It features an exceptionally low profile design enabled in part by its front inboard suspension, with a shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain powered by a midship motor and employing front/rear ball differentials plus full ball bearings. Its futuristic body design is the work of Kota Nezu at znug design, and features numerous clear sections that just add to the Super Avante’s distinctly modern mood, as do the cockpit-rear buttress and the four mini fenders.

TD4 – Low Profile, High Performance
The TD4 is a shaft-driven 4WD buggy chassis which employs front inboard suspension for slim, low-profile form. It features a longitudinal battery pack position in the center and a midship transverse motor for optimum balance and improved performance. The drivetrain uses full bearings, and sealed front/rear gearboxes have built-in ball differentials. Two link rods and crank arm transmit movement of the left-side servo to the three-piece steering arm setup. 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension utilizes CVA oil dampers. Turnbuckle shaft upper arms facilitate camber angle adjustment. Two types (high/low) of wing stays are included and star dish wheels are paired with square spike tires which offer superlative grip off-road.

    Still no details on exactly what you need to do to remove the battery. I’m not keen on un-doing screws in and out of plastic every battery change. Terrible idea.

    Yep. Saw that pic. Still seems like you have to unscrew the suspension mount each time you change the battery. Also, not sure what “which springs up dynamically” means. Still a nice looking buggy though.

    Those clips are probably for the body. If you look at the picture you can clearly see exposed screw threads

    An add on to my last comment. They look like screws, not self tappers so probably go into captive nuts not plastic.

    Body clips are for disconnecting quick release steering arms .after looking at photos again
